Subject: Mountain Jam = Donovan?
Just finished off this show, what a great one. I love the sound from 73. Never really cared for Donna's singing, but love Keith on the keyboards!
On to the Mountain Jam -- toddonbike mentioned this, and I concur that this is a spin on Donovan's "There is a Mountain" (off of Sunshine Superman album). Very distinctive "First there is a mountain, then there is no mountain, then there is" repeating over and over through the jam. I love Donovan's stuff. Love to hear the Dead's spin on it!
As for the show, the playlist and performances get a 5, but the audience cuts spliced in really hurt, especially during Row Jimmy. Midway through do I actually hear a woman scream "Play us something we can dance to!"?
Subject: Around & Around placement
There has been some confusion whether "Around & Around" belongs as the opener of the second set. Although it is an audience recording, it has been placed there in the soundboard source. However it is non existant in all audience sources. One audience taper at Watkins Glen said if it was played, he would have taped it.
More recently, a new source of the Band's set surfaced, and it included much much more of the final jam (featuring members of the Band, GD and Allmans). Well one of the numbers that were performed during this jam was "Around & Around." So therefore, that is where the song belongs. It is not part of the GD's second set.
Subject: Mountain Jam is all I need...
"Mountain Jam" is an improvised instrumental jam by The Allman Brothers Band. The song's first known recording is on 5-4-1969 at Macon Central Park, but was officially released later on the albums; Live at Ludlow Garage: 1970, Live at the Atlanta International Pop Festival: July 3 & 5, 1970, The Fillmore Concerts, deluxe edition of At Fillmore East (1971), and Eat A Peach (1972).
The song is based on Donovan's 1967 hit-single "There Is a Mountain"
Subject: watkins glen show
what more can be said that hasnt already, historical show, sound is tough at points but is mostly good and listenable, great setlist sweet encore
Subject: Solid yet Tier 2
I have always felt this is a real good show, hardf not to like a '73, yet I do not put it in the first tier for the year, i.e. 10.19 thru 12.19, RFK both nights , 4.2, 5.26. That said a real enjoyable streaming experience, better than the cassette I had 25 years ago. And the historical value cannot be understated.
A reviewer mentioned Jerry "taking on Duane". That was cute, not sure how long you;ve been listening to live Dead, but the Dead actually did Mountain Jam before the Allmans did it, back in 1970 at Port Chester. Or at least very close to the same time. Point being that was a song each band explored and put their own twist on, neither Jerry nor Duyane were "taking on" the other at all. Didn't want people to be misled. I do recommend however streaming Fillmore East 2.11.70 and 4.26, especially the latter, to hear Duane at work on stage with the Dead.

~This Day In GRATEFUL DEAD History~
Thirty six years ago today the GRATEFUL DEAD were playin' Watkins Glen and this is what it sounded like.
It happened so long ago, it's as if it NEVER HAPPENED at all. But to the people that were there it was one of "the most significant events" in their lives.
This show ain't recorded perfectly and it ain't mixed perfectly either, but it's all we got.
There are parts in Truckin' where distortion/static covers the music like dust on a needle but it does get fixed.
Row Jimmy, Jack Straw, Sing Me Back Home, Not Fade Away, Mountain Jam and Johnny B. Goode are audience quality recordings. Seems "they" forgot to turn up the stage mics...hmmm.
A nice show from 1973 to add to your collection, but not a must have show, unless you were there.
I recommend using your EQ during playback of most of the shows on the IA, this one included.
Windows Media Player has a 10 band EQ and SRS WOW effects that enhance the sound.
Here's one way to download this show:
The IA recommends users of Windows XP view this web-page with RealPlayer.
RealPlayer is a free media player you can download at www.realplayer.com.
Using RealPlayer to view this webpage, click the VBR M3U link to open the songs in the Playlist.
If your Playlist is not open, open it by clicking the Playlist icon at the lower right hand corner of RealPlayer.
Once the songs are in the Playlist, double click the song to play it, then click the Record button at the lower left hand corner of Realplayer to record it.
When the red line reaches the other end click the stop button to download the song. Your song is in the RealPlayer Downloads folder.
You can even click the red line just behind the tip that's moving and make it jump ahead so it takes less time to download the song, I call it milkin the red line, try it.
Repeat these steps for each song.
Eat, Drink, Be Merry and Listen to the GRATEFUL DEAD.
Thanks for the LOVE from 1973.
PS: Remember to click on the "DeadLists Project" link and get the poster and ticket for this show.
PSS: Get 1973-07-27 GRATEFUL DEAD live at Watkins Glen too.
Subject: eat a peach?
i decided to listen just for the mountain jam, but the whole show is good. listen to it all. why not. its the dead. the mountain jam is extremely interesting. jerry taking on a little bit of duane is pretty damn interesting, i thought he couldn't do it, and well... see for yourself.
duane may have been dead by this show, hell he may have been dead even when eat a peach was released, and thats the beauty of it. all the way into 72 years after duane stopped playing they released some of his best jamming, a 33 minute improvisational frenzy. i love the dead's take on it
Mr. Sweet Island Skunk -
